The Festival is a family and pet-friendly event. Admission is free, and people are invited to participate in the Kite Contest, which has categories ranging from “strongest pulling kite” to “most unusual kite.” Registration is at Zilker Park between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the day of the event.
In addition to the Kite Contest, approximately 30 food vendors are expected at the event. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, bring a chair, and enjoy the festival.

Zilker Park is home to the spring-fed Barton Springs Pool, the Zilker Hillside Theater, the Zilker Botanical Gardens and a number of areas for playing sports and enjoying the outdoors.
